Two state employees have been arrested and charged with accepting bribes from a contractor accused of defrauding the state, Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris announced Tuesday. Michael Mathison, owner of Veteran Toners Services, allegedly supplied inflated quotes to the Department of Fish and Wildlife and the California Department of Transportation  for office supplies, overcharging the state by at least $50,000. Mathison, 50, of San Pedro produced counterfeit quotes from nonexistent competitors with higher prices, and his firm was awarded the office supplies business at the original inflated price, the complaint alleges.
